A boy and his Mama (1860's style)

 
 
We spent the weekend on a 3-day class trip to Sherbrooke Village a heritage museum set in the 1860's.  We dressed up in period clothes and experienced life as it was in the olden days.  

Can I say that I'm really glad that women's fashion has evolved?  After spending the day in a full length dress, petticoat, snood and bonnet, I had a new found appreciation for what my ancestors endured. Especially when it rained all afternoon and I was trudging through the puddles. No prince on a white horse ever came to lay down his coat for me.  Oh well, maybe next time.

Your weekend looks like it was a lot of fun. I'd have loved to try the dresses. Not for the whole weekend but just to see what it felt like.

That looks like so much fun, and that first photo is 10 kinds of adorable. :)
